The work of Risieri Frondizi (1910-1983) is an important historical
and philosophical connection between the Hispanic world
and American philosophy. Frondizi shares with the classical American
pragmatists, especially with John Dewey, (1) the same criticism
of the starting point of modern philosophy, and (2) a defense
of ‘experience’ as the proper basis for any philosophical inquiry.
Moreover, (3) Frondizi can be read as making significant
and original contributions to the history of doctrines such as pragmatism,
which take ‘experience’ as their starting point.
